Lady Dorna Swyft is the daughter of Ser Harys Swyft and wife of Ser Kevan Lannister.[1] They have four children together.

According to Cersei Lannister, she is chinless, chicken-legged and flat-chested.[2]

History

When Dorna was younger, her father borrowed large sums of money from Lord Tytos Lannister. After the War of the Ninepenny Kings, the young heir of Casterly Rock, Ser Tywin Lannister demanded that all those who took loans from House Lannister had to repay them immediately, those unable to do so instead had to surrender a family member as a hostage until their debt was settled.[3]

Ser Harys unable to pay at the time, handed Dorna over to the custody of Ser Kevan Lannister.[3] The two were eventually married.

Ser Kevan recalls Dorna as a gentle soul, never comfortable except at home with friends and kin around her. She had done well by their children, dreamed of having grandchildren, was devout and prayed seven times a day, loved needlework and flowers. Kevan thinks of her before his death.[4]
